It will tell with an immediate and emotional language an amazing itinerary: how much man has produced since arriving on this earth, the transformation of the natural landscapes and the culture and rituals of consumption as a starting point for any future project.
“We wanted to tell a story which begins from the earliest period of human history, through symbols and myths, the different stages of evolution and man’s relationship with Nature – tells the curator Davide Rampello – the story ends with the current paradox regarding nutrition. A fascinating journey that turns a universal story into an individual one.”
